AT&T Approves SlingPlayer Over 3G, You Can Now Watch TV On The iPhone


AT&T approved Sling Media’s Slingplayer app for the iPhone to run over the 3G wireless network. The app had only been available over WiFi until now. 

So, if you own a slingbox, and you’ve paid $30 for the iPhone app, you’ll be able to watch all your TV shows right on the iPhone anywhere there’s a 3G connection.

This is also good news for Hulu and Netflix. If the companies ever put out iPhone applications, then they won’t be confined to WiFi.
